Division of Medical Toxicology

Emergency Medicine Division of ToxicologyThe UH Division of Medical Toxicology is dedicated to advancing the care of patients impacted by toxin, drug, or environmental exposures through bedside care, education, research, and public health endeavors. Medical toxicologists are experts involved in the care of people who come into contact with drugs, substances or other agents causing potentially adverse health effects. This also includes adverse health effects of medications, occupational and environmental toxins, biological agents, and recreational drugs as well as addiction and substance use disorders. Medical Toxicology is an officially recognized subspecialty by the American Board of Medical Specialties.

Our division includes two medical toxicology attendings who are available to provide emergency and inpatient consultation services at UH Cleveland Medical Center, and assist with management of patients at other UH facilities through the UH Transfer Center.

Each member of the Division is committed to enhancing the education of providers across disciplines in identifying and treating all patients with toxicologic needs in Northeast Ohio. Educational initiatives incorporate all level of trainees from the medical students to practicing physicians.

Aside from bedside clinical responsibilities, the Division of Medical Toxicology is engaged in expanding critical care service lines to provide high quality hyperacute resuscitation to all patients across the UH system. We welcome inquiries regarding opportunities to get further involved with our division at any level.
